    OXFORDSHIRE, ENGLAND: Didcot B station, which in 2003 was voted Britain’s 3rd worst eyesore, is gas fed and supplies electricity to over 1.5 million people. In Britain, 5.8% of the energy supply comes from nuclear, 1.8% from renewable sources, and 92.4% from fossil fuels.

    DRUMDERG, SCOTLAND: A wind-farm engineer reaches for the lightning card on the aileron of a wind turbine. This small electromagnetic strip measures lightning striking the turbine and is checked biannually. Drumderg wind farm can generate enough renewable electricity to power around 25,540 homes per year.

    'The Renewables Project is a unique photographic vision of the hydroelectric landscapes of Scotland mid-winter. Nocturnal icy vistas combine with brutalist structures in this award-winning series of large-format images.’

    Toby Smith will be showing more from this project, and also images from Light After Dark, at The Hospital Club in London this weekend. Read more on the Getty Images blog.

    Oil has often brought tumultuous change to the region under which it is discovered. Geologists and oil companies have long known that the Bakken oil field under North Dakota existed, but, until the development of efficient fracking technology, there was no cost-effective way of extracting it. That has changed, and so has Williston, ND. The deluge of oil workers arriving in town has caused a spike in crime and a severe housing shortage. Rental prices rival those in Manhattan, and workers sleep in their cars or in the local church. Despite this, the lure of high-paying jobs will likely continue to draw hordes to Williston.
